Cole Beasley caught six passes on seven targets for 44 yards and the Dallas Cowboys ' only touchdown in Thursday's loss to the Panthers.
The garbage-time TD was his third of the season. Tony Romo re-injured his clavicle in the game, and Beasley ended up catching his touchdown pass from Matt Cassel, the same QB who helped him rack up 112 yards and two scores in Week 9 against the Eagles. If Cassel remains in the starting role, Beasley could see a bump in value, but the Cowboys could also elect to give Kellen Moore a chance as they begin to look ahead to 2016.
Cole Beasley caught one pass off of three targets for 14 yards in Sunday's win over Miami.
In Tony Romo's first game back in the lineup since Week 2, the Dallas Cowboys leaned heavily on the run and 13 of 28 targets went to Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams, leaving Beasley and others short on opportunities. Beasley has now been limited to one or no catches in four of his last five games and, though the other game was a two-touchdown highpoint against Philadelphia, Beasley should remain out of lineups until further notice.
Cole Beasley caught an eight-yard pass on his lone target in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.
Last week's nine-catch, two-score game appears to have been more exception than rule. Beasley caught at least four passes in each of the Dallas Cowboys ' first five games, but has snagged one pass on four targets in Weeks 7,8 and 10 combined. The shifty slot receiver is on pace to shatter career marks in catches and yards, but, like many of his teammates, is an inconsistent performer at best with Tony Romo out of the lineup.
Cole Beasley had the best game of his career in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, catching nine passes on 11 targets for 112 yards and two touchdowns.
After being held without a catch in Matt Cassel's first two starts under center, Beasley suddenly found himself thrust into the spotlight as the Eagles secondary just couldn't keep tabs on him out of the slot. Dez Bryant's return to form certainly helped keep defensive attention off the Dallas Cowboys ' other receivers, and with rookie Lucky Whitehead assuming more of Beasley's kick return duties, the diminutive receiver took full advantage of his opportunities on offense. Next week in Week 10 is a Bucs defense that's allowed 19 passing TDs on the season, second-worst in the league.
Cole Beasley was targeted once and held without a catch in Sunday's loss to Seattle.
After catching between four and six passes in each of the first five games of the season with Tony Romo and Brandon Weeden doing the throwing, Beasley has been held catchless with just thee targets in two games playing with Matt Cassel. Beasley has carved a niche for himself over the past three or four years as the Dallas Cowboys ' man in the slot, occassionally putting together solid fantasy performances. Unfortunately, as is the case with the entire Dallas receiving corps, consistent production may still be a few weeks away as the team continues to struggle in Romo's absense.
